In a series of simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation cases, long-term data demonstrated that patient and graft survival were equivalent for conventional donation after circulatory death (DCD) vs. donation after brainstem death. The utilization of DCD pancreases may expand the donor pool with comparable results to DBD transplantation.
